2:00 am
the skills they need. listen up. carpenters plumbers they need your work and they are paying for it. penny priscart says this is a growing problem. >> i talked to 1,800 ceos around the country. they say they are struggling to find enough workers with the skills they need to fill the jobs they have today. that's another area we have to focus in order to continue to keep the united states on the cutting edge of innovation. >> the silver lining. shortage of workers is starting to boost wages in some industries. it is 5:00. "early start" continues right now. happening now, new focus in the search for two escaped prisoners. have the dangerous killers moved into vermont or hiding miles from the prison they just broke
2:01 am
out of? and the president announcing the latest on the fight against isis. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. john berman has the morning off. happening now, the manhunt for the two who escaped from the maximum prison from new york. the governors of new york and vermont holding a news conference. the governor andrew cuomo saying authorities believe richard matt and david sweat discussed vermont as a destination. and police closing a state highway pursuing a tip and more information coming to light on the connection with the fugitive and the woman, joyce mitchell who worked in the tailor shop.
2:02 am
mitchell's daughter-in-law suggesting she may have been duped by people outside of the prison on behalf of matt and sweat. matt suggested he was interested in art and she contacted people on his behalf. let's bring in the latest on the investigation with jason carroll. >> reporter: police will retrace their steps in front of the prison knocking on doors and searching every building and not wanting to leave any stone unturned. they have 500 leads that they will be following up on. including one lead that seems to suggest that these two fugitive its may have had a plan to visit vermont. >> we have information that suggests that they thought that new york would be hot and vermont would be cooler in terms of law enforcement and that a camp in vermont might be a
2:03 am
better place to be than new york. >> do you know where in verizon? >> we vermont? >> we do not. >> reporter: you remember joyce mitchell. she is the prison employee brought in for questioning. there were allegations she befriended the inmates. i spoke to her daughter-in-law at length. she said 95% of what is put out in the media is untrue. paige mitchell said i'm disgusted that anyone would think she would help them. she would never want a criminal near her family. there has been talk about whether or not joyce mitchell had a plan to help the two once they escaped outside of manhole. maybe possibly to provide a get away car. i asked paige mitchell. she said that is ridiculous. she said her heart was in the
2:04 am
right place, but she was trying to do something nice and it back fired. christine. >> jason, thank you. the pentagon moving forward to send 450 additional troops to iraq to aid the iraqi fight against isis. the personnel focusing on training sunni and peshmerga fighters. then speeding up the weapons to the sunnis in response to the delay. the overall american aim is sparking the fight against the islamic state. michelle kosinski has more from the white house. >> reporter: christine, these are 450 additional u.s. troops sent to a key area in iraq anbar province. between ramadi and fallujah. they will be on a military base but the white house says not in a combat role. their job is to advise assist
2:05 am
and train iraqi forces. help the iraqis help themselves. the u.s. also wants to stream line the process of getting more equipment to the iraqis. help them get the recruits they need. especially from sunni tribes. the question is there that if the problems have existed for some time within the iraqi army and this kind of assistance and more has been considered for some time why wasn't this and more done before the fall of ramadi? and sending now significantly more u.s. troops doesn't that indicate there were significant underestimates if what was needed in the first place? we got as much of an admission of the problems we will get. u.s. officials said yes, the fall of ramadi was a setback. yes, forces need to be more nimble in fighting isis which has been nimble. they need to react more quickly when there are shortfalls. u.s. officials said this is a
2:06 am
problem that they have been trying to solve. among the criticisms coming from members of congress, especially republicans, more needs to be done. the president needs to layout a more detailed strategy and questions over how much good really these additional u.s. troops will do. christine. >> michelle kosinski thank you. the emphasis on training sunni and peshmerga fighters. the push to get weapons into the sunni hands more directly and quickly. following the timing of the fall of ramadi to isis. this strategy seems to put less on the central government there. joining us to put the pieces together is cnn's ian lee. ian, despite the trainers and new equipment from the american government iraqi officials say it is not enough. what do they want? >> reporter: that's right. for the sunnis they have been for a long time asking for this weapons and training that's
2:07 am
going to be crucial for retaking ramadi. for them to control anbar province. iraqi officials are saying it is not enough. iraq's vice president allawi says they still need more. >> i don't think this is the frankly only answer. this may be part of the answer and the small part of the answer. i know we are in need of training. we are in need of equipment. we are in need of weapons. we are in need of intelligence. to get intelligence and proper intelligence and know where the strong points of isis and know the weak points of isis. what to do. this is unfortunately not available yet. >> reporter: what the iraqi government has been asking for is more intelligence. more surveillance. knowing where isis fighters are
2:08 am
and moving. and in talking to ben wedeman, they need more weapons, not training. you talk to a general who has been in the army for 35 years, he said he did not believe the united states was committed to defeating isis. he says the u.s. has the abilities to defeat them, but he has not seen it yet. >> can more weapons and training defeat isis or is there a political component to this as well? >> reporter: ultimately it will be a political deal between the sunnis and shi'ites. a lot of mistrust there. this goes back for many years. so there is that divide that will be difficult for diplomats to try to get them to come together and see eye to eye. as you reported earlier, you said earlier that these weapons had been slow to getting to the sunni fighters. that highlights this mistrust that okay if they are able to defeat isis what next? that is going to be the crucial
2:09 am
part moving forward. >> that sunni disenfranchised government in baghdad is something feeding the fuel of the recruitment of isis as well. important to watch that. thank you, ian lee. american citizen killed in syria fighting isis. keith broomfield was fighting along kurdish forces near kobani. it is not clear how his remains will be repatriated. the rise of isis could spell the demise of al qaeda. two of the top spiritual leaders say the terror group is no longer a functioning organization because it is ripped apart by isis. now one leader is completely cut off by isis after the recruiting

2:32 am
tailor shop. her daughter-in-law suggests she may have been duped to contact people outside of the prison on behalf of richard matt. she believes he had her contact people who knew about art on his behalf. let's bring in the latest on the investigation with jason carroll. >> reporter: christine, police say they are redoubling their efforts and retracing their steps in the neighborhood in front of the prison and knocking on doors and searching every building. not wanting to leave any stone unturned. they have 500 leads they will follow-up on. including one lead that seems to suggest that these two fugitives may have had a plan to visit vermont. the reason why? vermont's governor weighed in on that. >> we have information that suggests that they thought new york would be hot, vermont would
2:33 am
be cooler in terms of law enforcement and a camp in vermont might be a better place to be than new york. >> do you know where in vermont? >> we do not. >> reporter: the new york governor says it is important to follow-up on all leads. including the lead with joyce mitchell. christine, she is the prison employee brought in for questioning over the weekend. there have been allegations she had befriended both of the inmates. i spoke to her daughter-in-law at length. she said 95% of what is being put out in the media is simply untrue. paige mitchell said quote this is anppalling to me. she would never want a criminal near her family. there's also talk about whether or not that joyce mitchell had a plan to help these inmates once they had escaped out through the manhole. allegations she would provide some sort of get away car. i asked paige mitchell about that as well.
2:34 am
she said that is absolutely ridiculous. she said her heart was in the right place, but quote she was trying to do something nice and it back fired. christine. >> thanks jason carroll. a lot of developments this morning. we will continue to follow this for you. the pentagon moving forward to carry out president obama's orders sending 450 additional troops to iraq to aid the fight against isis. the personnel will focus on training sunni tribesmen and kurdish peshmerga fighters. the u.s. to speed up delivery of weapons to sunnis. the complaint is now the delay in the weapons. we have more from michelle kosinski at the white house. >> reporter: christine, these are 450 additional troops sent to a key area in iraq anbar province between ramadi and
2:35 am
fallujah. two cities which have been taken over by isis. their job is to advise assist and train iraqi forces and help the iraqis help themselves. the u.s. wants to stream line the process of getting more equipment to the iraqis. help them get the recruits they need. especially from sunni tribes. the question is if these problems have existed for some time within the iraqi army and this assistance and more has been considered for some time why wasn't this and more done before the fall of ramadi? and sending significantly more u.s. troops doesn't that indicate there were more significant underestimates from the first place? we got from the white house as much of an admission of problems we will get. u.s. officials said the fall of ramadi was a setback. yes, forces need to be more nimble in fighting isis which
2:36 am
has been nimble and they need to react more quickly when there are shortfalls. the u.s. says this is a problem they are trying to solve. and the criticism is more needs to be done and questions over how much good these additional u.s. troops are going to be able to do. christine. >> michelle thank you. the emphasis on training sunni and peshmerga fighters the push to get weapons in sunni hands directly. the timing the fall of ramadi to isis. this strategy is putting less reliance on iraq's central government to fight. joining us with the latest is cnn's ian lee. additional trainers and iraqi officials say it is not enough. what do they want? >> reporter: christine, the
2:37 am
sunni tribes say this is what they want. they want more weapons. this is the only way they can take the fight to isis and liberate their tribal lands. for the central iraqi government they are still demanding more from the united states. iraq's vice president allawi has said they need more intelligence to help combat isis. take a listen. >> i don't think this is frankly, the only answer. this may be part of the answer and the small part of the answer. i know we are in need of training and in need of equipment and we are in need of weapons. we are in need of intelligence and to get proper intelligence and to know the strong points of isis and the weak points of isis and what to do. this is unfortunately not
2:38 am
available yet. >> reporter: we heard this from the iraq prime minister as well that they need to have this intelligence to watch where isis moves to follow them and to strike them when necessary to help defeat them. when ben wedeman went to the frontlines to talk to the commanders they said they don't need training. they need more weapons. one general said to ben that he has been in the military for 35 years. he knows what the united states is capable of and what they can do. he says he doesn't believe that seeing what they delivered that they are committed to win and fight isis. >> there needs to be ian, a political change here. weapons and training alone cannot defeat isis. >> reporter: and this is the fine line christine, that the united states is walking. if they give everything to the central government and baghdad to support the shi'ites and they
2:39 am
are able to rollover isis quickly, that doesn't give them the incentive to have the dialogue and talk with sunnis. with a unified iraq they need to bridge the mistrust. something that hasn't been able to happen yet. when we did see the united states engage the sunnis when they were occupying iraq that is when we saw the battle turn around and the united states really gained ground when they were able to build this trust with the sunni tribes. that is something the united states is pushing again. they hope that it will be the key to solving the problems in iraq. >> ian lee in cairo, thank you. an american citizen killed in syria fighting against isis. the state department confirming keith broomfield of massachusetts died last week. fighting alongside kurdish forces near kobani. the state department has been in contact with broomfield's family. it is not clear how he will be

do you know where the meat you buy comes from? soon the answer could be no. the house voted to repeal country of origin laws on beef pork and poultry. the laws discriminate against imports. big food companies support the repeal. consumer advocates say no way. shoppers have a right to know where their food comes from. a big push in the past ten years. people want to know where their food comes from. the senate needs to approve that repeal. a now former texas police officer caught an camera pulling his gun on teenagers at a pool party. now explaining why he did that next. nerve pai these feet grew up in a family of boys... married my high school sweetheart... and pursued a degree in education. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and she prescribed lyrica.
